Caper is a genre-busting digital series that combines live action with comics and animation. It centers on the alter egos of a team of superheroes who repeatedly save the City of Angles from disaster, but get nothing in return for their efforts aside from platitudes and the occasional key to the city. At some point, that’s not enough. Especially in today’s economy where it’s a struggle to pay rent and you have to work two jobs just to put gas in the Batmobile… which in our world looks an awful lot like a ’94 Corolla. Starring Abby Miller, Beth Riesgraf, Harry Shum Jr, Hartley Sawyer.
